Elon Musk has been uncharacteristically quiet on social media for more than a week as he pursues the acquisition of the Twitter service.
Musk hasn't tweeted on his personal account in nine days, leaving many to wonder why the typically active CEO has stopped using social media.
Musk's plans to buy Twitter, which he claims serves a crucial purpose in the modern world but is tainted by bias and politics, raise more problems.
On June 21, he made his final post before going dark, responding to a tweet regarding SpaceX and the Federal Communications Commission.
SpaceX urged the FCC to investigate whether Dish and Michael Dell-affiliate RS Access filed "intentionally misleading reports" in the battle over 12GHz broadband, a fight SpaceX representatives describe as an unlikely but existential threat to Starlink: https://t.co/s7rhXQoy4p

Earlier this month, Musk made a withdrawal threat, alleging that the business had violated the merger agreement by "actively fighting and blocking" his request for details regarding the spam and bogus account data.
The board of Twitter has "unanimously recommended" that shareholders approve Elon Musk, the CEO of Tesla, buying the social media behemoth for $44 billion.
On Twitter, Musk recently exceeded 100 million followers. According to social media monitoring service SocialBlade, Musk reached the milestone between Sunday and Monday.
Musk highlighted that his goal is to create an inclusive and enticing Twitter experience.
"Ideally I’d like to get like 80% of North America and perhaps, I don’t know, half the world or something ultimately on Twitter in one form or another," Musk explained. "And that means it must be something that is appealing to people. It obviously cannot be a place where people feel uncomfortable or harassed, or they’ll simply not use it."
